Top Premier League clubs interested in Ukrainian star
Ukrainian winger Yevhen Konoplyanka has been the subject of interest from a whole plethora of European clubs in the past few years.
The Mirror are reporting that amongst this plethora of clubs is six Premier League teams all vying for his signature, one mystery club even had a bid rejected late this summer to only put more pressure on the wingers future.
The 23 year old currently plays his football in Ukraine for a club called Dnipro Dnipropretovsk.
The player usually plays on the left wing but can play behind the striker or on the right.
The tricky little player is valued by his club at £16 million. But the bid from the anonymous English club was said to be £6 million under the reported valuation.
He’s not the most prolific of wingers as he scored just two goals and grabbed four assists in 20 domestic league appearances last season but he has already matched the goals scored this season.
However, the British media and English fans definitely know what this player is capable of because when England last played Ukraine in the qualifiers, it was his goal that earned his country a draw.
Yevhen is poised to pick up where he left off against England tonight as both countries will engage in round two of the qualifiers tonight in Kiev.
With so many big clubs after him at the moment, his agent admits that the next year will be a very busy time for the player and his club.
